Kayaking in Scotland – Loch Earn

Loch Earn

Tay Country, Perthshire/Stirling

Loch Earn is located on the boundry of Perthshire and Stirling county. It’s also a furthest east located water venue withing the Loch Lomond and Trosachs National Park. We will be exploring the east side of the loch, not far from the golf course in St Fillans. Hikers, swimmer and cyclists would also find here a lot of intersting routes to complete. A great family-friendly destination.

We love exploring here in the autumn, winter and early spring time, avoiding the crowds. Lochearnhead is steeped in history from the Mesolithic-Age, the Bronze Age with the crannogs on Loch Earn, the evidence of Pictish and incoming Scots from Ireland and the feudal estates of the clans McGregor, McLaren and Stewarts.
